The package contain three disc namely, the server installation DVD, the Home Server connector CD and the Home Computer Restore CD.

With allocation of up to 10 computers connected and protected, this may be the cheapest solution for longhouses to share their files and getting connected to the upcoming WiMAX broadband. (You need a broadband Internet connection for Home Server to function).

I would love to assist any longhouse (who at the moment have the wireless broadband connectivity).. although its a little slow for a broadband, but it is worth implementing. at least you can check your email!

I will share with you my experience using the Home Server in my post to come.
